READY IN: 2hrs 30mins




  • Bring beer to a boil in a saucepan and simmer 3-5 minutes. Do not let it boil over.
  • Measure beer into a measuring cup and add water as needed to make 1 1/2 cups. Let cool if necessary until the right temperature for your machine.
  • Place all ingredients except for the egg, water and 1/4 tsp salt in your breadmaker in the order recommended by the manufacturer.
  • Using "dough" cycle, start breadmaker and allow to complete its mixing, kneading and rising.
  • Transfer dough to a clean oiled counter top and knead lightly.
  • Grease a large baking sheet. Form dough into a long narrow loaf and transfer to baking sheet. Combine glaze ingredients (if you are using them) and brush over the loaf. Cover loosely with greased waxed paper, place in a warm area and let rise until doubled in bulk, about 45 minutes.
  • Bake at 375º about 30-32 minutes or until the loaf sounds hollow when tapped.
  • Cool on a rack before slicing.
